Adult Christian Education
We are called to be lifelong learners by God. CtK offers a variety of adult studies throughout the year. Classes include a Confirmation/Inquirers Class, geared toward people that are new to the Episcopal Church; a Newcomers Class geared to people interested in finding out more about CtK and how to become more involved; and an Adult Forum held most Sundays from 9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m. between services.
A list of current classes will appear here shortly.
Education for Ministry
It isn’t too soon to think about registering for Education for Ministry! According to our Mentor, Deacon Cathleen Carlton, “EfM provides an opportunity to dig deeper into the Christian faith by studying the Old and New Testaments, Christian history, and theology and a chance to reflect on connecting your own faith with life experiences.”
Details are as follows: Classes, which meet once a week from 6 to 8 p.m. for a nine-month academic year (with breaks for Thanksgiving and Christmas), are sponsored by the University of the South at Sewanee, Tennessee. The fee is $375 per academic year, which includes textbooks and a resource manual. Homework is assigned and participation is required.
A Continuing Education certificate may be awarded for each of four years of study, provided the participant has not missed more than three seminars during that time. After successful completion of the four year program, a diploma from the University of the South is awarded to the graduate (more at http://efm.sewanee.edu/).
Class size is limited, so please contact Deacon Cathleen with questions or to let her know you have decided to participate.
